Valuation: Freedom vs. Fairness
American Thinker, by Deborah C. Tyler

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/1/2014 9:29:44 AM

Through the course of thirty-five years of practicing psychology, I have come to believe that the key to happiness and success in life resides in the power of valuation. True valuation is the ability to recognize the most important value in every circumstance and to behave in order to actualize that value. The happiest people automatically recognize and act upon true values. Applied psychology has not fulfilled its potential to make the world a better place because it has not focused on the powers of valuation. America´s happiness and success as a nation have resulted from the one-pointed emphasis on the

Article V Convention:
Path of Least Resistance
American Thinker, by Robert Berry    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 2/1/2014 9:24:57 AM     Post Reply
In what is taking shape as a sort of Great Awakening, state legislators have begun to learn that they hold equal status with Congress when it comes to proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Indeed, a handful of state legislators from each state, as yet unknown, are destined for the annals of American history the moment the nation´s first Convention for Proposing Amendments is gaveled to order. The process, found in Article V of the U.S. Constitution, requires the legislatures of at least two thirds (34) of the states to pass resolutions demanding that Congress call a "Convention for Proposing Amendments"

A Few More Reasons
To Repeal ObamaCare

Moody´s rating agency has lowered the outlook for health insurers from stable to negative, blaming ObamaCare. Few Americans will shed tears for insurance companies. But the Moody´s announcement is a warning sign to taxpayers. They´ll be getting clobbered. Section 1342 of the Affordable Care Act forces taxpayers to make insurers whole for most of the losses incurred selling ObamaCare exchange plans through 2016. The bailout is designed to conceal the failure of the president´s signature health law until he is out of office. No one in the Obama administration talked up the advantages of bailing out insurers. It was kept under wraps until

Defense: Budget cuts, sequestration and indifference to maintaining what was once "the arsenal of democracy" have led to units that are not deployment-ready and soldiers with weapons their grandfathers could have used. The standing ovation given at the State of the Union to Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg, seriously wounded in an Afghan war that his commander in chief did not believe was winnable, was well deserved. It also served as a tribute to all the heroes we send into battle, particularly under rules of engagement that often make the proverbial "one hand tied behind your back" a preferable option.

If GOP Leadership Pushes Immigration Reform,
House’s Rising Stars Are Likely to Campaign
Against It

One tacit premise of the Republican House leadership’s push for immigration reform is that it’s good politics. The four members of the GOP conference stepping on to a larger stage this year, as candidates for the U.S. Senate, will probably disagree, and the 2014 campaign season may pit House leaders, chief among them Speaker John Boehner, who are campaigning for reform, against some of the party’s rising stars who are likely to crisscross their states inveighing against it. Two of the GOP’s Senate candidates, West Virginia congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito and Arkansas congressman Tom Cotton, are considered up-and-comers in the party.

Humans may have been a late arrival to a universe full of alien life, a new theory has claimed. Harvard astrophysicist Abraham Loeb believes that exoplanets warmed by radiation from the big bang may have been teeming with life just 15 million years after it occurred. The earliest evidence of life on Earth so far found dates from 3.8 billion years ago, around 700 million years after our planet formed. ´When the universe was 15 million years old, the cosmic microwave background had a temperature of a warm summer day on Earth,´ he told Space.com. ´If rocky planets existed at that epoch, then the

   

 

  


 
Prince Charles slams

LONDON -- Prince Charles has called people who deny human-made climate change a "headless chicken brigade" who are ignoring overwhelming scientific evidence. The heir to the British throne, a dedicated environmentalist, accused "powerful groups of deniers" of mounting "a barrage of sheer intimidation" against opponents. He made the comments at a Buckingham Palace awards ceremony on Thursday. Charles said it was "baffling ... that in our modern world we have such blind trust in science and technology that we all accept what science tells us about everything - until, that is, it comes to climate science." He praised finalists for the Prince of Wales

Making Sense of the Senseless

RUSH: Now, let me close the loop on immigration. We sit here, it doesn´t make any sense. It´s the end of the Republican Party. The polling data all shows it. The people that would be granted amnesty are not gonna vote Republican because of this or anything else. I mean, not without a lot of work. And the Republican Party being so publicly for amnesty is not going to change how these people vote. I don´t know if the Republicans think that´s going to happen. I do know that the prevailing thought or theory is really baked in total defensiveness. "Don´t

RUSH: The president has been on this kick lately of income inequality and fixing it. We gotta do something about economic inequality, educational inequality and income inequality. It´s just all equality. We gotta do something about it! The president said, "If the Congress doesn´t do anything about it, I have a pen, and I have a phone, and I will do it myself." Now, the way liberals go about changing inequality. A, the whole premise is flawed because you can´t. There is no such thing as equality, other than of opportunity and before the law. But there is no equality of

Amnesty is Suicide

RUSH: Look, I don´t care how you slice it, folks, it just doesn´t make any sense. Even the most accepted, and some might say logical explanation, it doesn´t make sense, and here´s what it is. Why are the Republicans willing to commit suicide? Because that´s what it is. Let´s review. Last fall, remember, leading up to the government shutdown, the Republican Party leadership is making sure they´re out there, they´re publicly saying, "Focus on Obamacare. Get rid of Obamacare. We gotta get rid of Obamacare." They wanted us to think that´s what they´re focusing on, and do not lose sight of

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, when we opened yesterday we spent about an hour, maybe a little bit longer, talking about immigration and the Republican Party -- where they are on it, what´s happening, Democrat and Republican electoral fortunes in the House and the Senate -- and there´s more on that today. The Republicans are having their three-day retreat in Maryland, and there´s a really confusing story here from TheHill.com. The headline reads this: "Boehner: House GOP is ´Alternative´ to Obama, Not ´the Opposition.´" Now, if that is accurate, that is also problematic. We need to be the opposition. An alternative, obviously.

Justice Goes After the GOP
Wall Street Journal, by Harvey Silverglate    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/30/2014 8:11:00 PM     Post Reply
Is Eric Holder´s Justice Department driven by a political agenda, or are the department´s recent prosecutorial decisions simply signs of overzealousness? The Justice Department has focused on two prominent Republicans, announcing a corruption indictment of former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell and launching an active and very public criminal investigation into the antics of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s administration. In doing so, federal prosecutors have created at least the appearance that they are targeting two men who have been touted as plausible candidates for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. A reading of the McDonnell indictment raises the obvious question of why

Hundreds of career Justice Department lawyers have broken into open revolt against Attorney General Holder over his support of legislation that would drastically cut back on mandatory minimum sentences for drug pushers. The legislation Holder supports, known as the Durbin-Lee bill, would overturn the current mandatory minimum sentences not only for marijuana violations but for all drug offenses, including major and repeat trafficking in heroin, meth, PCP and other extremely dangerous, and often lethal, drugs. This was too much for hundreds of federal prosecutors. Today, Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, read aloud from a letter the

WASHINGTON — Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year. Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

Remember how liberals pounced on Chick-Fil-A’s owner/president for saying more or less what Barack Obama said in his 2008 campaign for president? That marriage was between a man and a woman? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block the chain from coming to Beantown. Gotham’s then-City Council speaker, Christine Quinn, demanded Chick-Fil-A’s one New York store be sent packing. Well, this week Chick-Fil-A values were back in the news. When the deep South was paralyzed by snow that stranded motorists for hours and forced others to abandon cars, Chick-Fil-A moved in. In

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat. “I think politically speaking it’s a mixed bag, but the question is whether or not it’s something we have to do as a country, and I think that’s what’s trumping the political answer,” Mr. Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “You see in our party, whether it’s [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul, who’s called for massive immigration reform, or [Florida

The Barack H. Obama Foundation has officially been formed to begin planning Obama’s future presidential library, its directors announced on Friday. The foundation’s directors, long-time supporters of Obama, are Martin Nesbitt, J. Kevin Poorman and Julianna Smoot. The library’s goal is to reflect Obama’s career in public service, “expanding economic opportunity, inspiring an ethic of American citizenship, and promoting peace, justice, and dignity throughout the world,” the foundation said in a statement Friday. “I’m humbled and honored that President Obama has entrusted me to lead this effort,” Nesbitt said. “The President’s future library will one day serve as an important part

Conservative groups are mounting a major resistance effort against the Internal Revenue Service’s post-tea party targeting scandal rules, which are designed to clamp down on outside groups’ ability to organize as nonprofits and still play a role in political conversations. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell fired a major shot Thursday, taking to the chamber floor to say the rules amount to a declaration of war on free speech and vowing the GOP will try to block them. “Every American needs to know about this abuse of power,” said Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “Let me be clear: What the administration is

The snow and sleet have stopped falling and traffic is slowly moving again but a storm is now brewing over who exactly is at fault for the South´s winter weather fiasco. Weatherman Al Roker and the National Weather Service hit back at politicians in the South who have pointed the finger at inaccurate forecasts as the reason why authorities were so ill-prepared for snowfall and icy conditions which led to chaos on the roads. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said on Tuesday that the storm was ´unexpected´ and ´we can´t control Mother Nature´. However NBC´s Al Roker completely rebuffed this claim on

As predicted, the Obama administration and many in the Democratic Party are trying to peddle the story that ObamaCare is now working because the healthcare.gov website is functioning better. But despite the questionable claims of easier access and more people enrolling in the ObamaCare exchanges, the ugly truth is the horror stories are piling up and, sooner or later, ObamaCare’s cheerleaders will have to confront the overwhelming evidence indicting them for repeatedly lying to the American people. As expected, President Obama used his State of the Union speech Tuesday to extol the virtues of ObamaCare, and also as expected, retold the story

Sandra Fluke, who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at an all-male hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is “strongly considering” a bid for Rep. Henry Waxman’s congressional seat, according to KPCC, a Southern California radio station. “I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” she told the station. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”
